Product Description:
Epakitin, a new nutritional supplement from Vetoquinol USA, Inc., safely and effectively supports kidney function and helps slow down the progression of chronic kidney disease.

•  Easy to use in cats and dogs.
•  Helps pets feel better and live longer.
•  Great-tasting, easy-to-administer powder.
•  Can be used alone, mixed with regular food or in combination with a prescription renal diet.

Chronic Kidney (Renal) Disease (CKD, CRD) is one of the leading causes of death in dogs and cats. In North America, it is estimated that 8% of cats aged 10 years or more suffer from CKD. CKD affects approximately 2.4% of dogs aged 10 years or older. The diagnosis of Chronic Kidney Disease is generally based on low urine density and the increase of creatininemia, uremia and hyperphosphatemia, as well as clinical symptoms. By the time these symptoms become noticeable, serious damage may have occurred. Only when 75% of nephrons are no longer functional can clinical and biochemical signs of CKD be detected. While chronic kidney disease is incurable, adding Epakitin to the diet enables you to protect the renal function of dogs and cats better than ever. It is possible to slow down the auto-destructive cycle of CKD and increase life expectancy by limiting the increase of phosphatemia, with the help of a low phosphorus diet and/or by adding a phosphate binder to the diet.

Epakitin is a chitosan-based nutritional supplement that is both a phosphate binder and uremic reducer. In clinical trials chitosan has been proven effective in decreasing phosphatemia, as well as reducing urea and creatinine blood levels.

We`ve been using this item (Epakitin) for some time now as part of our dog`s overall treatment plan. We strongly believe in the product. We no longer have to make the long drive to our vet to get it. We also liked the price point we were offered.

Excellent service.....excellent price. We were paying $125 for a container about half the size of the one we received from your company.Thank you

i have used this product for well over a year. I use it along with Azodyl, and canine kd food.I believe that the combo of these products has definitely helped to keep my dog healthy and active - the cost is almost 50% less than at my vet.

I am glad that this medicine is available at a reduced price.

i get twice the amount here for ten dollars less than the vet price of 80 dollars! i wish i`d known about this site a long time ago. i, too, can`t say how much my dog benefits from this product, but it gives me piece of mind to provide it for him. you never know.

I`ve been using Epakitin for a little over a year as part of the treatment for my cats CRF (chronic renal failure). It was prescribed by my vet when she was diagnosed last year. She is doing quite well a year later, but with several other things she has been given as part of her treatment its difficult to say how much of her wellness is attributable to Epakitin. Its much cheaper here than the $80 the vet wants and since she seems to be doing well, I will continue to use it.
